My roosters are Brown Leghorn, Americana, EE, and recently added a Blue Rock. I have a variety of breeds of hens, including Barred Rock and Cuckoo Marans. In the past whenever there was a chick with black & white barring it has always grown up to be a cockerel. But recently I got 2 barred chicks that have grown to be pullets. Could they be children of the Cuckoo Marans? Or is this the influence of the new Blue Rock roo? One of them has cheek muffs which make me think there is Americana influence in there too. What do you think? Besides wanting me to post photos of them. I have been wondering about this for a while but finally got around to posting the question, give me some more time to get a photo of them to post.
